Do you remember my post on the new Estee Lauder liquid lip potion in Cold Fire? It’s here if you haven’t read it. There are 12 shades available in Malaysia, and I managed to get the swatches. However, Naughty Naive is missing from the swatch, so here are 11 swatches in total.      … Read more »


Sunday Stash Shopping #52: Benefit Bossy

I was de-cluttering and found an old eye shadow I bought because of Lisa Eldridge. She seems to have the ability to make me buy all sorts of things I don’t need. Anyone here with the same problem? I’m much better now though. This is one of the products she said she loved on eye… Read more »

Koyudo Fu Pa

Review: Koyudo Fupa 01, 02, 14

Aren’t these little kabukis cute? I saw plenty of these on Instagram (evil!) and got really curious. I was directed to CD Japan if I was interested, and that was where it started and ended. I have here 3 fupas. 01 (5520 yen) is a blush brush, 02 (4320 yen) a foundation brush (both goat… Read more »

Do Certain Lip Colors Make You Look More Youthful or More Mature?

My mom always says that red lips age a person. She prefers sheer nudes but I always think brighter colors make a person look more lively, more cheerful. Bright lips instantly perk up a woman’s complexion and I always tell my mom she looks so much better with them on. She, on the other hand, thinks it’s… Read more »


Sunday Stash Shopping #51: Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion in Cold Fire

Estee Lauder will launch a new line of lip lacquers next month, called the Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion (RM98) and I thought I’d let you know about it here, together with my stash shopping post. I’ll be putting up an FOTD using it anyway, so why not. A plain review is boring anyway,… Read more »

Review: Biotherm Biosource Cleansing Balm and Exfoliating Gelee

I’m having a hard time churning out reviews, because I’ve been feeling uninspired. I feel bored when I have to review average or mediocre things, and while I do not guarantee reviews for products sent, I still feel responsible and obliged to do one. This review, however, is not an obligation, because I really want… Read more »


Monthend Randomness: Let’s Talk About Love

I had a rant on blogging and my addiction to beauty stuff a while back <you can read it here if you’re curious> and I brought up the possibility of not blogging anymore. Friends were encouraging me to continue blogging, but maybe talk about something other than beauty related. I thought that was a really… Read more »

Pencils to throw and used up skin care

Empties: Devoured and Dumped

There is no way to make empties post interesting. However, I still want to document what I used up. I have used up skincare as usual, and threw out old makeup. I threw out mostly old pencils, both eye pencils and lip pencils. Dude, I had eye infections so regularly, I totally freaked out. Gone… Read more »

    It’s a big tool: Ecotools Bronzer Brush

    I’m a late boomer. I also believe in the phrase Better Late Than Never. I’ve always heard of Ecotools but never really tried it before probably due to the price tag and the brushes being synthetic brushes. I never liked the feel of synthetic brushes because they feel ‘plasticky’ and not as comfortable on the… Read more »

    FOTD: Dior Royal Kaki 454 & Diorshow New Look Mascara

    I received a mail from Dior about the launch of New Look collection, with an invitation to get my own mini eye palette Royal Kaki and a mini mascara. So I went, and it was then I took all the photos of the swatches for you. Here, using these 2 cute minis, I created a… Read more »

    Whitening & Hydrating: Chanel Le Blanc Serum

    My skin needs 2 main things: hydration and tone correction. Well, I have combination dry/oily skin which gives me headaches. I cannot use products which are too rich (breakouts!) and anything lighter just doesn’t do much to counter the dryness. The occasional breakouts leave some marks on my face, and my T-zone is dull. I… Read more »

    Removing eye makeup with Kanebo

    I ran out of my Lancome Bi-Facil. It was my favourite eye makeup remover, something I always went back to. I even finished the mini Bi-Facil that came with that purchase. Conveniently enough, I received this one from Kanebo when I purchased some Lunasol goodies. Lunasol is part of Kanebo, in case you were not… Read more »

    FOTD: Dior Rose Porcelaine (834)

    I like pink in general. Fuchsia, pastel pinks, baby pinks, hot pinks… just not on my eyes. I have double eyelids but I do not have a prominent eye socket. Some people call my type of eyes monolids, some call it hooded eyes, whatever it is, pinks just don’t look good on me. Shimmery pinks… Read more »

    Clarins UV Plus High Protection Mineral Sunscreen Review
